I'm back to my saeckpipa attempts. I've never wondered that before till it got serious. Smile But, is saeckpipa normally tuned in natural or modern equal temperament? May sound like a stupid question, ...

Thank you all for your kind answers and comments. I decided to make the mouthpiece of a separate piece of wood and treat it with linseed oil only. Just for a better feeling, I guess. Now, let's wait w ...

Interesting solution, though it adds some complexity to the whole process of making. When I was ma ...

I see that turpentine-linsen oil bath is a common finish used for wooden parts. But I find turpentine quite irritating to skin and not really pleasant to inhale and it actually doesn't seem a good ide ...
